X4130: Design and Write a RPG (Video Game) in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
Love playing video games? Have plans to create the greatest Role-Playing Game ever? Learn how to avoid cliches (or at least rewrite them in a way that players will be unsuspecting...). This class will focus on story-writing designed for the video game medium, which includes: the creation of intricate plot-lines, use of static and dynamic characters, and the methods to writing a story-outline. In addition, this class will concentrate on game mechanics, level balancing, world design, player motivation, map design, (and why RPG games are the best *cough*). If there is enough time, the class may briefly go through the positions in a game development team and how a one-man team might create a game. Note: Not a class that teaches you HOW to write, but the tools that can enhance your writing.

C4134: Karel the Robot teaches Java Programming in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
Want to learn Java Programming, but in a cute, cuddly way? Before jumping off to the world of code and black text, consider exploring Karel, a robot, and Karel's world, a 2-d grid. It's fun, and you get to learn! In this class, students will explore the fundamentals of computer programming through a more visual basis. This class will cover basic concepts like loops, recursion, and methods. Students will be able to control Karel by writing their own code. Class will include challenges on how to help Karel achieve certain goals (by which YOU will be writing code for). Have fun! Note: This is NOT Karel Programming, which is an educational programming language.

W4229: Acting 101 in Splash! 2010 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2010)
Curious about how it's like to stand in front of a stage? What are stage directions? Stage Acting 101 is designed for beginners and will explore the many ways to interpret acting scripts, the style and mannerism of actors, the casting process, how to "sound real", stage directions, and much more! The class will also contain ice-breakers, impromptu scripting, improv acting games, and other acting exercises that will (hopefully) improve your acting skills!
